I just put together my system and when i go to start it up it does 2 fast beeps continuously and it isnt listed in the manual what the fast 2 beeps mean. It may be a Raid problem because i am new to that and i have my master harddrive connected up to that. What is a Raid Controller? Does anyone have a clue what the problem is. I made sure all the case connectors are right to the motherboard.

With award bios continous short beeps is memory. It is either not seated correctly, missing or inconpatible.

Do you think the problem could have been the 4 pin motherboard connector from the powersupply??? i aint use to Pentiums and they had these things but the athlons i ran never did?! I think i fixed it but i will try again. It isnt the Ram or video i have tried that several times and they are brand new so they cant be the problem

What about the extra power 4pin power connector on the video card? That is necessary for it to function.
